Earth Day is coming up on April 22, and there is no better time to celebrate energy-efficient solutions that benefits our beautiful planet.
At On Time Home Services, we are always happy to encourage our customers to carefully consider their carbon footprint and seek eco-friendly solutions for utilities.

Here are a few Earth Day celebrations and events near our home of Temecula, California.

This family-friendly event will have face painting and recycling and coloring activities for kids. There will be free giveaways and a provided BBQ lunch.
Dogs are allowed in the parking lot and the Nature Center, but not on the rail systems throughout the conservation area.
San Diego EarthFair
Sunday, April 22, 2018 | 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Claiming to be the largest free annual environmental fair in the world, the San Diego EarthFair has been drawing crowds for 29 years.
The event is produced by 300 volunteers and expects approximately 60,000 visitors. There will be a food pavilion, a children’s activity area, four stages with live entertainment, an arts and crafts gallery, and the Cleaner Car Concourse featuring cars that run on alternative fuel. At 10:30 a.m. the Earth Day Parade will kick off the event by the Spanish Village and march to the Pan American Plaza. Participants can dress up as endangered species or present earth-friendly messages on signs.
The food pavilion will feature creative and delicious vegetarian options. Live local musicians will play on three of the stages throughout the day, and at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. Dr. Wilderness Family Magic Show will perform on the fourth “Magic Stage.”
The Children’s Activity Area features games, crafts, face painting, storytelling, and other hands-on activities designed to educate children about the environment. The stage in this area features kid-oriented performances all day.
Everything discarded from the EarthFair is meant to be recycled, reused, or composed so that this will be a zero-waste event.
We hope these Earth Day activities will provide you with plenty of celebration possibilities.
